One of the Greatest Days of My Ministry

Today was one of the greatest days of my ministry as we hosted the Grand Re-Opening of our worship center at Grand Avenue Baptist Church.  The $1.8 million renovation was an 18 week effort whereby we met in our gym for the summer months across two services.  In addition to the re-opening we baptized 6 people, revealed a new vision statement for the church, went live with our church’s app on iPad, iPod, and Android, and announced the launch of a second campus in 2012.  Joining us to celebrate the day were Fort Smith Mayor Sandy Sanders, Senator John Boozman, and Congressman Steve Womack.  Whew…what a way to celebrate the 77th birthday of a church!  Below are a few of the images of the day.  Enjoy.
